  • Tillman (shoulder) questionable for Thursday
    Chris Tillman (shoulder) is now questionable for his Thursday start against the Nationals.

    Advice: Tillman has been bothered by shoulder discomfort for the last few weeks and apparently had a bad between-starts workout on Tuesday afternoon. Orioles manager Buck Showalter said he'll make a decision about the scheduled Thursday start on Wednesday. There probably won't be an update before then. 39 minutes ago
  • Vargas (elbow) goes three innings at AAA
    Jason Vargas (elbow) gave up three runs in three innings Monday in a rehab start with Triple-A Omaha.

    Advice: He needed 67 pitches to get through those three frames. Vargas has been out all year due to Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery, but he could become an option for the hard-charging Royals early next month. 45 minutes ago

  • Huston Street expected to have knee surgery
    Huston Street is expected to undergo season-ending knee surgery.

    Advice: It's a fitting end to a disastrous season for the veteran closer. Street was rarely healthy this year and struggled when he was, collecting a miserable 6.45 ERA over 26 outings. Rookie Cam Bedrosian (finger) has surpassed him and would probably be the favorite for saves if he were healthy. Fernando Salas has filled in at closer the past couple weeks. The Angels' bullpen has been a complete mess this year. Today, 12:58 pm
    15-Day DL

  • Ross (shoulder) throws bullpen session Tues.
    Joe Ross (shoulder) threw a bullpen session on Tuesday.

    Advice: It's the first bullpen session Ross has thrown since being pulled off his rehab assignment earlier this month. Ross got off to a hot start this year but has yet to pitch in the second half because of a nagging shoulder injury. The Nats need as many reinforcements as they can get with Stephen Strasburg sidelined by elbow soreness, but Ross isn't particularly close to returning. Today, 12:51 pm
    15-Day DL

  • Jays option Ryan Tepera to Triple-A Buffalo
    Blue Jays optioned RHP Ryan Tepera to Triple-A Buffalo.

    Advice: The Jays needed to clear a roster spot for Kevin Pillar, who is back after missing two weeks with a sprained thumb. Tepera has spent of the most season bouncing between Triple-A and the major leagues. He should return the next time Toronto needs a fresh bullpen arm. Today, 12:29 pm

  • Tigers officially release RHP Bobby Parnell
    Tigers released RHP Bobby Parnell.

    Advice: Parnell cleared waivers after being designated for assignment last week. The 32-year-old appeared in a handful of games for the Tigers but has spent most of the year pitching for the team's Triple-A affiliate in Toledo. He'll catch on with another team but will probably have to settle for a minor league deal. Today, 12:19 pm

  • Cody Martin headed back to Triple-A Tacoma
    Mariners optioned RHP Cody Martin to Triple-A Tacoma.

    Advice: The Mariners had to clear a roster spot for tonight's starting pitcher, Taijuan Walker. Martin has made a couple starts this month and holds a 4.50 ERA over seven outings for Seattle this year. The 26-year-old could be back in the majors next week when rosters expand. Today, 12:00 pm

  • Mariners recall Taijuan Walker to start Tues.
    Mariners recalled RHP Taijuan Walker from Triple-A Tacoma.

    Advice: Cody Martin was sent down in the corresponding move. Walker will get the ball Tuesday against the Yankees following a short stint in the minors. The right-hander got off to a strong start this year but began to stall after a midseason foot injury hindered his effectiveness. For what it's worth, he looked good in the minors with a 3.60 ERA in three starts for Tacoma. Today, 11:56 am
  • Heller called up to replace injured Swarzak
    Yankees recalled RHP Ben Heller from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

    Advice: He'll absorb the roster spot left by Anthony Swarzak, who was placed on the disabled list Tuesday with a rotator cuff injury. Heller was with the Yankees earlier this month but didn't appear in any games. The right-hander was acquired from Cleveland last month in the Andrew Miller trade. Today, 11:24 am
  • Swarzak (rotator cuff) placed on 15-day DL
    Yankees placed RHP Anthony Swarzak on the 15-day disabled list with right rotator cuff tendinitis.

    Advice: He must have hurt himself pitching Monday against Seattle. Ben Heller was recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre in the corresponding move. Swarzak has posted an ugly 5.90 ERA in 25 outings this year while allowing 10 homers in only 29 innings of work. It's unclear how much time he'll miss. Today, 11:21 am
    15-Day DL

  • Hill (blister) to make Dodgers debut Wednesday
    Rich Hill (blister) will start Wednesday's game against the Giants.

    Advice: At long last, Hill is finally ready to make his Dodgers' debut after missing over a month with a painful blister. Hill has pitched brilliantly when healthy this year, providing a stellar 2.25 ERA over 14 starts. Ross Stripling was expected to lose his spot in the Dodgers' rotation upon Hill's return but he might stick around now that Scott Kazmir is dealing with back and neck issues. Today, 10:57 am
    15-Day DL

  • Asher beginning rehab assignment Tuesday
    Alec Asher will begin a minor league rehab assignment Tuesday with the Phillies' Gulf Coast League affiliate.

    Advice: Asher was suspended 80 games in June after testing positive for a performance-enhancing drug and won't be eligible to return until mid-September. He's on the Phillies' 40-man roster, so there's an outside chance he could get a call-up for the final two weeks. The 24-year-old had a 2.30 ERA and 35/7 K/BB ratio in 54 2/3 innings in Double-A this year prior to the suspension. Today, 8:48 am
    5:10 pm @CWS
  • Time running out for Sonny Gray to return
    Sonny Gray (elbow) said Monday that he hopes to pitch again this season, but that he's not ready to resume throwing.

    Advice: And with the minor league season coming to an end in the first week of September, the potential for a return is looking more unrealistic by the minute. "I’m hoping; I’d like to get out there again," said Gray. "But I’m not ready to throw now. I know that even if they cleared me to throw when I go in there to talk to them, I’d be forcing it by going out there today." Athletics manager Bob Melvin said that Gray could potentially work toward coming back to throw in the bullpen for pregame work only, but it appears that his return to game action could have to wait until 2017. Assuming Gray is done, he'll finish the year with a brutal 5.74 ERA over 21 starts. Today, 6:34 am
    15-Day DL

  • Weaver not ready to decide on future
    Jered Weaver isn't ready to say whether he will retire after the season.

    Advice: Weaver, 33, is finishing the final season of his five-year, $85 million contract with the Angels. He owns a career-worst 5.47 ERA through 24 starts and while his velocity has ticked up slightly, it's fair to wonder how much longer he can hang on. "There’s still a lot of season left," Weaver said over the weekend. "When the time comes to answer those questions, I will." The Southern California native has spent his entire 11-year career with the Angels. It's unclear whether he'd be willing to pitch elsewhere. Today, 6:12 am
  • Jon Lester earns 14th victory
    Jon Lester held the Padres to one run in six innings and struck out eight in winning Monday.

    Advice: Lester moved to 14-4. The Cubs have won each of his last seven starts, with Lester picking up five wins in the span. Next up for him are the Dodgers in Los Angeles this weekend. Yesterday, 10:48 pm
  • Edwin Jackson gives up five runs
    Edwin Jackson lost to the Cubs after giving up five runs in five innings on Monday.

    Advice: Jackson is still getting paid by the Cubs, so it just wouldn't have been fair for him to go out and beat them tonight. At least, that's what he can tell himself. He's 3-4 with a 5.71 ERA. Yesterday, 10:45 pm
  • Cody Martin gives up four homers
    Cody Martin was tagged for four homers and five runs in 5 2/3 innings by the Yankees on Monday.

    Advice: With James Paxton on the way back and Taijuan Walker perhaps ready to be recalled, Martin's brief rotation stint should be coming to an end. On the plus side, the Mariners have won both of his starts since he was recalled a week ago. Yesterday, 10:35 pm

  • Enrique Burgos blows save
    Giving the ninth with a one-run lead, Enrique Burgos gave up a homer to Freddie Freeman and took a blown save Monday.

    Advice: Burgos got the win when the Diamondbacks came back and scored in the bottom of the ninth. He's taken three blown saves in his last four appearances, but this is the first of those that have come in the ninth. He could get the Diamondbacks' next save chance anyway. Yesterday, 10:20 pm
  • Arodys Vizcaino gives up four runs
    Arodys Vizcaino gave up four runs in two-thirds of an inning after entering Monday's game against the Diamondbacks in the seventh.

    Advice: This wouldn't seem to bode well for Vizcaino returning to closing duties anytime soon. Those holding on to him in mixed leagues should consider looking elsewhere. Yesterday, 10:17 pm
  • Carlos Carrasco goes eight scoreless in win
    Carlos Carrasco fanned nine in eight scoreless innings Monday to beat the A's.

    Advice: Carrasco allowed just four hits and walked none in a dominant outing. He has a 28/0 K/BB ratio over his last three starts, though this is the first of those in which his ERA has gone down. The Indians had been 1-4 in his previous five starts. Yesterday, 10:08 pm
  • Andrew Miller notches second save for Tribe
    Andrew Miller threw a scoreless ninth against the A's on Monday for a save in a 1-0 game.

    Advice: Cody Allen got the save Sunday and Miller hadn't pitched in four days, so it made all kinds of sense to go to Miller after Carlos Carrasco pitched eight scoreless innings tonight. Allen still looks like the favorite for saves in Cleveland. Yesterday, 10:05 pm
  • Andrew Triggs goes six scoreless
    Andrew Triggs blanked the Indians for six innings in a no-decision Monday.

    Advice: Triggs struck out six in his second straight positive outing. Still, the A's ended up losing 1-0. They're 0-4 when Triggs starts and 1-21 when he pitches at all this year. He'll face the Cardinals in St. Louis next time out. Yesterday, 10:02 pm
  • Walker expected to start Tuesday vs. Yankees
    Taijuan Walker is expected to be recalled from Triple-A Tacoma to start Tuesday against the Yankees.

    Advice: The Mariners have yet to make an official announcement, but Bob Dutton of the Tacoma News Tribune hears from club officials that Walker is the likely choice. The 24-year-old is coming off 6 1/3 scoreless innings in his most recent start at Triple-A. He'd be worth using in mixed leagues again if he shows signs of progress Tuesday. Yesterday, 6:11 pm
  • Rodriguez (hammy) to throw sim. game Tuesday
    Eduardo Rodriguez (hamstring) will throw a three-inning simulated game on Tuesday.

    Advice: Rodriguez was scratched from Sunday's scheduled start against the Tigers due continued tightness in his left hamstring. The hope is that he'll show enough progress Tuesday to be cleared to return to action. Yesterday, 2:36 pm
    4:10 pm @TB
  • Ross (shoulder) could return as reliever
    Nationals manager Dusty Baker said Monday that he has spoken to Joe Ross (shoulder) about returning as a reliever.

    Advice: The minor league season is winding down, so Ross is simply running out of time to make it back as a starter this season. The 23-year-old has been out since the start of July with a shoulder injury. Yesterday, 2:08 pm
    15-Day DL
    4:05 pm @Bal
  • Mets recall RHP Gsellman from Triple-A
    Mets recalled RHP Robert Gsellman from Triple-A Las Vegas.

    Advice: This confirms a report from FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal. Gsellman is probably the Mets' most advanced pitching prospect at this point, but he's expected to pitch out of the bullpen for now. Though given the questions surrounding Steven Matz (shoulder) and the back-end of the rotation in general, look for him to eventually get a chance in the rotation. Yesterday, 1:56 pm
  • Rockies place Oberg on 15-day DL
    Rockies placed RHP Scott Oberg on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to August 20, with axillary artery thrombosis.

    Advice: No word on the severity of the issue or his outlook moving forward, though it obviously could be unrealistic for him to make it back this season at this point. The Rockies should provide further information soon. Carlos Estevez has replaced him in the Rockies' bullpen. Yesterday, 1:33 pm
    15-Day DL
    5:10 pm @Mil
  • Mets promoting RHP Robert Gsellman from AAA
    FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Mets are promoting prospect right-hander Robert Gsellman from Triple-A Las Vegas.

    Advice: This comes after Betsy Helfand of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported that Gsellman was scratched from his start Monday in Triple-A. According to Rosenthal, the plan is for him to pitch out of the bullpen initially, though he figures to eventually see some starts down the stretch. The 23-year-old has posted a 4.54 ERA with 6.9 K/9 and 2.4 BB/9 over 20 starts this year between Double- and Triple-A. Yesterday, 1:08 pm
  • Vargas (elbow) moves rehab to AAA Omaha
    Jason Vargas (elbow) has moved his minor league rehab assignment to Triple-A Omaha.

    Advice: He'll start for Omaha on Monday night against the Triple-A affiliate of the Athletics. Vargas has been on the disabled list all year as he makes his way back from Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery. He could become an option for the Royals (as either a starter or reliever) by early September. Yesterday, 12:29 pm
    60-Day DL
    4:10 pm @Mia
  • Shelby Miller could be close to return
    Diamondbacks chief baseball officer Tony La Russa indicated Sunday that Shelby Miller is close to returning to the major league rotation.

    Advice: Miller registered his fourth consecutive quality start on Saturday at Triple-A Reno, throwing eight innings and allowing three runs versus the Triple-A affiliate of the Giants. "We’ll brainstorm about if his next start is with us or the one after," La Russa said Sunday. "This is all good. He’s getting some real good experience, having some success and figuring things out, getting his delivery together and his mind right." Miller has a brutal 7.14 ERA in 14 starts this season with Arizona. Yesterday, 10:06 am

  • D'Backs owner shot down Shelby Miller deal
    According to Bob Nightengale of USA Today, Diamondbacks ownership shot down a trade at the non-waiver deadline that would have sent Shelby Miller to the Marlins.

    Advice: Nightengale's source claims that owner Ken Kendrick and president Derrick Hall intervened on the deal because it "just wouldn't look good" after what the Snakes had to give up for Miller last winter. Diamondbacks ownership also reportedly vetoed a plan to replace manager Chip Hale this summer with Triple-A skipper Phil Nevin -- a plan devised by chief baseball officer Tony La Russa and general manager Dave Stewart. This whole thing's a mess. We wouldn't be surprised to see a major front-office shakeup this fall in Arizona. Yesterday, 6:15 am

    6:40 pm vs Atl
  • Taijuan Walker could start on Tuesday
    Taijuan Walker is a candidate to start Tuesday versus the Yankees.

    Advice: Wade LeBlanc is another option, although he would be taking the ball on three days' rest. Walker has put up a 3.60 ERA over three starts for Triple-A Tacoma since being sent down, although it's come along with a 6/8 K/BB ratio over 15 innings. Sunday, 11:27 am
  • Huston Street (knee) could undergo surgery
    Huston Street will receive a second opinion on his ailing right knee and could opt to undergo season-ending surgery.

    Advice: Street has been sidelined all month with a knee issue and apparently hasn't experienced improvement as hoped. It's unclear what the specifics of the operations might be if he has one, but it's not expected to be anything that would threaten his availability for the start of 2017. Fernando Salas is currently filling in as the Angels' closer. Sunday, 10:56 am
    15-Day DL
    4:07 pm @Tor
  • Eduardo Rodriguez (hamstring) scratched Sun.
    Eduardo Rodriguez (hamstring) has been scratched from his scheduled start on Sunday versus the Tigers.

    Advice: Rodriguez was pulled from his last outing with a tight left hamstring and he still felt it during a between-starts bullpen session. The left-hander will not be placed on the disabled list, so it sounds like he's expected to start sometime later this week. Henry Owens will be recalled to make a spot start. Sunday, 5:18 am
    4:10 pm @TB
  • Burgos strikes out two, snares first save
    Enrique Burgos struck out two and walked one in the ninth inning to earn his first save of the season on Saturday versus the Padres.

    Advice: Burgos may have become the current occupant of the Diamondbacks' musical chair at closer. He is not a great option but everyone else in their bullpen has tried and failed to hold the job. Burgos has a good strikeout rate but walks have been a real problem throughout his career, even in the minors. He has a 3.07 ERA with 31 punchouts and 15 walks in 29 1/3 innings. Owners should grab him if he is available but don't expect him to run away with the job for long. Saturday, 9:01 pm
  • Tillman coughs up six runs in two innings
    Chris Tillman walked five batters on the way to giving up six earned runs in just two innings in a loss to the Astros on Saturday.

    Advice: He couldn't find the plate and failed to strike anyone out. He gave up a two-run homer to the second batter of the game. He pitched into the third inning but was pulled after hitting the first batter and walking the next three to bring in a run without a bat ever hitting the ball. Tillman was pitching on nine days rest after being pushed back due to a tender shoulder. He has been very effective this year after a down season last year. Tillman now has a 15-5 record and 3.76 ERA. Saturday, 7:59 pm
  • Jered Weaver gives up four homers to Yanks
    Jered Weaver served up four home runs balls while giving up five runs in 4 2/3 innings Friday against the Yankees.

    Advice: It's really quite impressive that Weaver has managed to keep it together as well as he has this year, given that he's pitching without a fastball. Not that a 5.47 ERA is truly getting the job done, but it's not like the Angels have better alternatives at the moment. Friday, 11:26 pm
  • Hill (blister) expected to start next week
    Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Friday that Rich Hill (blister) is "penciled" into the rotation next week.

    Advice: We've heard that a few times before. Hill got through a simulated game on Thursday with no issues, so unless he has yet another setback with his blister it appears he'll finally make his Dodgers' debut sometime next week. He last started on July 17, when he was still a member of the Athletics. Friday, 2:31 pm
    15-Day DL
    7:10 pm vs SF
  • Enrique Burgos moving into closer role?
    Enrique Burgos holds a 0.87 ERA and 23/10 K/BB ratio over 20 2/3 relief innings since being recalled last month.

    Advice: He hasn't earned any saves yet over that stretch, but Jake Barrett has struggled of late and it looks like Burgos might move into the ninth inning. The 25-year-old hasn't given up an earned run in his last 13 appearances, although he did serve up a bases-clearing double Thursday (all three runs were charged to Barrett). Burgos is worth a speculative pick-up in fantasy leagues. Friday, 8:53 am
  • Rodriguez (hamstring) on track for Sunday
    Eduardo Rodriguez (hamstring) remains on track to start Sunday against the Tigers.

    Advice: Rodriguez exited his last outing versus the Orioles with tightness in his left hamstring, but he'll be fine. The left-hander had tossed four hitless innings while striking out seven before leaving his last start. Friday, 5:54 am
    4:10 pm @TB
  • Tillman (shoulder) to start Saturday vs. HOU
    Chris Tillman (shoulder) has been confirmed as the starter for Saturday's game against the Astros.

    Advice: Tillman had his start pushed back a few days because of shoulder discomfort but he threw off flat ground on Thursday and appears to be a go for Saturday. The 28-year-old has easily been the Orioles' best starter this year, going 15-4 with a 3.46 ERA in 25 outings. Thursday, 1:42 pm
  • Braves activate closer Arodys Vizcaino off DL
    Braves activated RHP Arodys Vizcaino from the 15-day disabled list.

    Advice: A few days earlier than expected. Vizcaino allowed a run on two hits in his last rehab appearance with Low-A Rome, but his oblique strain is healed and the Braves figure to insert him right back into the closer role, even though Jim Johnson has done a great job filling in. Vizcaino wound up missing a little over a month. Thursday, 12:17 pm
  • Tigers DFA right-hander Bobby Parnell
    Tigers designated RHP Bobby Parnell for assignment.

    Advice: Parnell has posted a pedestrian 3.95 ERA, 1.41 WHIP, and 30/18 K/BB ratio in 43 1/3 innings this season at Triple-A Toledo. He made six appearances earlier this summer with Detroit but those didn't go well either. Look for the 31-year-old to pass through waivers. Thursday, 7:13 am

  • Carrasco coughs up five runs in 6 2/3
    Carlos Carrasco was charged with five runs -- four earned -- while striking out 11 in 6 2/3 innings versus the White Sox on Wednesday.

    Advice: Despite the five runs he was actually in line for the win until Cody Allen imploded in the ninth inning. Carrasco was missing bats all night, fanning 11 without walking a single batter. He deserved a better fate tonight all things considered. He scattered eight base hits, including a home run by shortstop Tim Anderson in the third inning. Carrasco will take his 3.34 ERA into starts in Oakland and Texas next week. Wednesday, 9:43 pm
  • Jon Lester pitches Cubs past Brewers
    Jon Lester limited the Brewers to one run and three hits in 6 2/3 innings to win Wednesday.

    Advice: Lester cruised against a lineup that's of little threat to lefties with Ryan Braun hurt and Jonathan Lucroy traded. He's given up a total of five runs in his last four starts, and the Cubs have won all six of his starts since the All-Star break. Wednesday, 8:32 pm
  • Sonny Gray (forearm) not ruled out for season
    A's manager Bob Melvin said that Sonny Gray (elbow) has not been ruled out for the season.

    Advice: While Gray has yet to embark on a throwing program, the muscle strain and inflammation in his right forearm have begun to subside and the once-and-future ace has begun taking part in plyometric exercises. While Melvin isn't ruling him out completely, Gray would have to make sustained, rapid progress in his rehab to realistically be able to return before the end of the season. Wednesday, 7:42 pm
    15-Day DL

  • Rich Hill (blister) to throw sim game Thurs.
    Rich Hill (blister) is scheduled to throw a simulated game on Thursday in Arizona.

    Advice: Dodgers manager Dave Roberts expressed hope after the workout that Hill might return at some point during next week's home series against the struggling Giants, which runs from Tuesday to Thursday. Hill last started on July 17, when he was still a member of the Athletics. A pesky blister on his left hand has caused his stay on the disabled list to last for a month, with at least one more week yet to follow. Wednesday, 5:20 pm
    15-Day DL
    7:10 pm vs SF
  • Chris Tillman (shoulder) ready for Sat. start
    Chris Tillman (shoulder) said that he expects to start against the Astros on Saturday.

    Advice: Tillman tossed seven innings of two-run ball against the A's in his last start, but felt discomfort in his shoulder after the outing. He had been scheduled to start versus the Red Sox on Wednesday. Saturday against the Astros is the new plan and barring an unexpected setback, the 28-year-old right-hander sounds as though he will be able to make that one. Wednesday, 1:10 pm
  • Eduardo Rodriguez (hammy) on track for Sun.
    Red Sox manager John Farrell said Wednesday that it looks like Eduardo Rodriguez (hamstring) will make his next start Sunday against the Tigers.

    Advice: Rodriguez left his start Tuesday night against the Orioles after experiencing tightness in his left hamstring, but he felt good after the game and even better when he reported back to Camden Yards on Wednesday afternoon. This doesn't sound like a hamstring strain. Rodriguez had thrown four hitless innings Tuesday versus the O's and boasts a 2.52 ERA with 39 strikeouts in 39 1/3 innings since his return to the major league rotation in mid-July. Wednesday, 11:51 am
    4:10 pm @TB
  • Triggs shows well over 5 2/3 against Rangers
    Andrew Triggs allowed one run over 5 2/3 innings Tuesday against the Rangers.

    Advice: Triggs yielded just two hits without walking a batter, easily his best showing in what has largely been a rough rookie season for the 27-year-old. What's worse, he didn't even get a win for his efforts, leaving him still searching for his first big league victory. Triggs will look for that first win Monday against the Indians, carrying a 4.98 ERA and 1.38 WHIP into that outing. Tuesday, 10:39 pm
  • Edwin Jackson roughed up by Rays on Tuesday
    Edwin Jackson was knocked around for nine hits and eight runs over four innings in a loss to the Rays on Tuesday.

    Advice: That's the Edwin Jackson we've been expecting. The right-hander had actually been pretty good in five starts since being acquired by the Padres from the Marlins in mid-July, but this is a guy who hadn't started since 2014, when he posted a 6.33 ERA. Jackson now owns a 5.36 ERA and 1.51 WHIP in 47 innings this year. His next start will come Sunday against the Diamondbacks. Tuesday, 8:13 pm
  • Farrell: E-Rod (hammy) could take next turn
    Red Sox manager John Farrell said he's optimistic Eduardo Rodriguez (hamstring) won't have to miss a turn in the starting rotation.

    Advice: Rodriguez left his start Tuesday against the Orioles after four hitless innings because of tightness in his left hamstring, but the leg loosened up as the night went on and Farrell told reporters after the game that he felt the team caught the issue before it became something serious. Rodriguez has been excellent in three of his last four outings. Tuesday, 7:45 pm
    4:10 pm @TB
  • Chris Tillman (shoulder) pushed to Saturday
    Chris Tillman's next start has been pushed from Wednesday against the Red Sox to Saturday against the Astros due to right shoulder discomfort.

    Advice: Dylan Bundy will take the bump on Wednesday night in his place. Tillman held the A's to two runs over seven innings in his last start, moving to 15-4 on the year with a 3.46 ERA, 1.21 WHIP, and 126/53 K/BB ratio in 151 innings. Hopefully this is nothing serious. Tuesday, 7:37 pm
  • E-Rod left his start with hamstring tightness
    Eduardo Rodriguez departed his start Tuesday against the Orioles because of left hamstring tightness.

    Advice: Rodriguez was able to walk off the field under his own power, so we can hope he did not suffer a hamstring strain. The young left-hander was working on a no-hitter through four innings at Camden Yards, having racked up seven strikeouts against one walk. He will be reevaluted on Wednesday. Tuesday, 5:52 pm
    4:10 pm @TB
  • Eduardo Rodriguez leaves start due to injury
    Eduardo Rodriguez left his start Tuesday against the Orioles with an undisclosed injury.

    Advice: Rodriguez had worked four innings of hitless ball with seven strikeouts and a walk. There should be an update out of Baltimore within the next hour or so. Tuesday, 5:40 pm
    4:10 pm @TB
  • Cody Martin to start Wednesday vs. Angels
    Cody Martin will start for the Mariners on Wednesday against the Angels.

    Advice: Martin has registered a 3.93 ERA, 1.25 WHIP, and 99/30 K/BB ratio in 103 innings this season at Triple-A Tacoma. He's an iffy fantasy streaming option at Anaheim. Tuesday, 4:01 pm

  • Mariners recall Cody Martin from Tacoma
    Mariners recalled RHP Cody Martin from Triple-A Tacoma.

    Advice: Martin will be available out of the Mariners' bullpen on Tuesday night, but he's also an option to start Wednesday versus the Angels. The 26-year-old right-hander has a 2.70 ERA and 1.10 WHIP in 10 innings of relief this season at the major league level. Tuesday, 2:09 pm

  • Ross (shoulder) to throw bullpen session
    Nationals manager Dusty Baker said Monday that Joe Ross (shoulder) will throw a bullpen session while the team is in Denver this week.

    Advice: Ross was pulled off his minor league rehab assignment earlier this month due to renewed soreness in his right shoulder, but he's ramping things up again. The Nationals figure to decide on the next step depending on how he feels after the bullpen session. Ross has been sidelined since July 2. Monday, 4:23 pm

  • Rich Hill (hand) moving his rehab to Arizona
    Rich Hill (blister) will travel to the Dodgers' spring training complex in Arizona this week.

    Advice: He had been scheduled to make a rehab start with Triple-A Oklahoma City on Monday, but that plan was scratched following a bullpen session Sunday at Dodger Stadium. Hill hasn't pitched in a game since July 17 -- when he was a member of the Athletics -- and is still experiencing problems with a severe blister on his left hand. The hope is that the dry air in Arizona will help the healing process. He is scheduled to face hitters in a simulated setting on Wednesday and Thursday, then the Dodgers will try to come up with a new timetable for his L.A. debut. Aug 15, 6:09 am

  • Jered Weaver pitches like Jered Weaver
    Jered Weaver was unimpressive in Sunday's loss to the Indians, surrendering five runs on 10 hits over 5 1/3 innings.

    Advice: Weaver did not strike out a batter on the afternoon. Jason Kipnis hit a solo homer off the veteran right-hander in the first inning. Weaver would later surrender two-run frames in the fifth and sixth to polish off the scoring on his line. There is no fantasy intrigue here, but Weaver will take a 5.32 ERA and 1.50 WHIP into a home start against the Yankees next time he toes the rubber nonetheless. Aug 14, 3:23 pm
  • Rich Hill (blister) throws bullpen session
    Rich Hill (blister) threw a bullpen session Sunday.

    Advice: It surely means that he's not going to make a rehab start for Triple-A Oklahoma City on Monday as expected. However, the fact that he was throwing suggests that Hill hasn't had another setback with his blister. The Dodgers should provide an updated plan on the left-hander shortly. Aug 14, 11:36 am

  • Sonny Gray (forearm) may not return in 2016
    Sonny Gray (forearm) may not return this season.

    Advice: Athletics manager Bob Melvin said Sunday that Gray isn't close to resuming a throwing program, which is obviously bad news when there are only seven weeks left in the season. It's been an injury-shortened, awful season for the right-hander, as Gray has put up a 5.74 ERA over 21 starts. Aug 14, 11:30 am

  • Jason Vargas (elbow) on rehab assignment
    Jason Vargas (elbow) has made two rehab appearances with the Royals' Arizona League affiliate.

    Advice: He's allowed four runs -- two earned -- with an 8/0 K/BB ratio over four innings. Working his way back from Tommy John surgery, Vargas could pitch for the Royals in September but it would almost surely be as a reliever. Aug 14, 8:10 am
    60-Day DL

  • Rich Hill to make rehab start on Monday
    Rich Hill (blister) is scheduled to make a minor league rehab start on Monday.

    Advice: Hill made it through a 35-pitch bullpen session on Friday without any issues, but the club wants him to make it through a minor league rehab start first before rejoining the Dodgers rotation. He'll take the ball against the Reds on Saturday if Monday's outing goes well. Hill has been sidelined for more than a month now due to this blister issue. Aug 13, 10:48 am

  • Arodys Vizcaino to begin rehab on Saturday
    Arodys Vizcaino (oblique) will begin a minor league rehab assignment with the Gulf Coast League Braves on Saturday.

    Advice: He'll then work in two outings with Class-A Rome on Tuesday and Thursday. If all goes well, he could be looking at a return to the Braves bullpen and his closer's role by next weekend. Aug 13, 9:49 am
  • Yankees option Ben Heller back to Triple-A
    Yankees optioned RHP Ben Heller to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

    Advice: Heller was with the club just for two days as an extra bullpen arm. He has been terrific in the minors this season and will get another chance to work out of the big league bullpen once rosters expand in September. Aug 13, 8:12 am
